Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good "I never let the truth get in the way of a good story,” Shakespeare tells us. Purists may have a field day with "All Is True,” and it does have a tendency to lag, but I found myself thinking about it days after I'd seen it.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Good ...an unfussy, intimate chamber drama that's fearless in confronting the attitudes of its exalted subject. By film's end, Branagh suggests that the characters Shakespeare became known for may have resulted from genius, but it was a genius borne of his profound understanding of his human frailty.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
In 1613, after a devastating fire destroys the Globe Theatre during the first production of Shakespeare's play "All is True" ("Life of Henry VIII"), a distraught Shakespeare (Kenneth Branagh) returns to Stratford. As he saw his family infrequently during his two decades working in London, his wife Anne (Judi Dench) and daughters Judith (Kathryn Wilder) and Susanna (Lydia Wilson) are surprised, but hardly pleased, to hear he now intends to stay in Stratford. Shakespeare, who is haunted by the death at age 11 of Judith's twin brother Hamnet (Sam Ellis), attempts to ease his grief by planting a memorial garden for his son.

The simmering tensions in the family that have been contained during Shakespeare's absence, gradually surface. Anne, who felt humiliated by her husband's public display of affection in his sonnets, is not pleased when the man who may have inspired them, and to whom they are extravagantly dedicated, the Earl of Southampton (Ian McKellen), comes to pay a visit. Judith resents what she feels is her father's strong emotional preference for her dead twin Hamnet over her, and her anger is only magnified by the guilt she feels as the surviving twin.

Shakespeare's relationship with his elder daughter Susanna is more cordial, but the relationship is upset when she is accused of being unfaithful to her husband, which leads to a very public trial. As the son of a once prestigious local man who fell into disgrace, Shakespeare is particularly threatened by Susanna's scandal, as he prizes the elevated social standing in Stratford he has worked so long to achieve. He also has lingering questions about the circumstances surrounding his son's death and is driven to find answers.
